The Supersymmetry

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The supersymmetry is, simply stated, the symmetry between bosons and fermions. However, the dynamics of the supersymmetry is very complex and interesting. In this chapter, we will review the formalism of the supersymmetry starting from the supersymmetry algebra and its basic properties. We will then present the way to construct the supersymmetric lagrangian, the supersymmetric gauge theory, and the non-renormalization theorem.
